Nominally its 2.5cm, Dotan.  Our 'yard' of 36 inches is near your 'meter' 
which is 39.xx inches to us.  Yeah I bitch everytime I have to do 
something in inches that makes a hell of a lot more sense to do in metric, 
but 200 million old fogies like me yelled when they tried to start selling 
gasolene by the litre.  I was for it myself.  And I still consider the US 
as the odd man out in the measurement wars, fallout of my eletronics 
experience I guess, we don't measure anything but wavelength in feet and 
that takes tricky math.
